Recent Manasota Key reviews
great family trip
"I was a little worried to book this property having read a couple of the recent reviews. I decided to take the risk because I wanted to be right on the beach, not "steps away from the beach." The risk was well worth it! My family stayed for five days. The house was very comfortable and clean. My kids were able to go in and out and down to the beach whenever they wanted. It is a very private stretch of beach - not really accessible from the public beaches. We found tons of shark teeth, kayaked and paddle boarded. My boys fished from the beach and from the dock. The owner's brother who lives nearby event lent my kids his fishing net when they lost theirs the day before. We would definitely stay there again."

"Oh my....absolutely wonderful, perfect, and all you could ever ask for in staying almost in the beach instead of on. Door to the beach is more than a true description for sure. Door to pure happiness, peace, and joy for the beach goer and sun God or Goddess. The cottage is immaculate and stocked for all needs rather in restroom or kitchen. The master bed was fantastic as was the temperature and fans in the home after coming in from the heat. Bikes, washer and dryer, beach toys for the kids, and on and on. Manatee within first 30 minutes being there and in the ocean. Dolphins, many, saw daily. And the turtles!!!! Saw one nesting one night and even go to see the STOP ladies assisting a nest that had already hatched. The beach is so secluded in a way as folks consider this part of the beach, Florida, and area, "old Florida." Just like the good old days before all the commercial stuff. None of that here. Just a wonderful vacation for our family. I was sad to leave and am anxious already to return. Well worth the stay as all of the comforts are more than you could hope for and it's just a wonderful rental thanks to Neal!!!!"

"This was our second visit to this beautiful place. We really enjoyed having beautiful views of the gulf and swimming in it daily as well. Unit is very spacious and clean. 3 good size bedrooms all have flat screen tvs and 2 of three with balconies and large closets. Bathrooms are great size with large walk in fully tiled showers and a great amount of cabinet storage. Kitchen well stocked, large pantry, marble counters and open concept to living area and huge balcony. Very easy access to beach. Our property manager was very attentive to any needs. Handful of nearby restaurants were great. Live music at quite a few. This is a getaway location that is private with just enough access to some outings as needed. Nearby boat, jetski, canoe/kayak rentals. Nearby Stump Pass Beach State Park is beautiful, especially at southwest gulf side end."

"Our family of 6 spend a very relaxing week at Sunset on Manasota Key. Kyle and Suzie made our stay so comfortable. The cottage had everything you needed and more. The view was to die for and having the beach to ourselves made it so special and private. My teenage boys and husband fished from the shoreline everyday and caught a variety of fish. My older daughters and I enjoyed sunbathing and floating on the beautiful clear blue water. We all loved to get together in the evening to view the beautiful sunsets. Don't hesitate to rent this tropical paradise. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you Kyle and Suzie for sharing your piece of heaven with us."
